Description

  The present invention relates to a calculus removing device.

  A urinary calculus is a calculus present in the urinary tract such as the kidney, ureter, bladder, and urethra, and a calculus whose origin is the kidney or ureter is called an upper urinary calculus. In urolithiasis, these urinary calculi cause various symptoms. For example, when a stone formed in the kidney moves to the ureter, the stone may cause pain or hematuria due to damage to the ureter, or the stone may cause a transient hydronephrosis due to blockage of the ureter As a result, severe pain (crush) from the back to the flank is caused. Removal of stones is an effective means for alleviating and treating these symptoms.

  In the case of urinary calculus, if the effects of natural stone removal and conservative treatment cannot be expected, aggressive surgical removal is performed. Active removal methods mainly include extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL), transurethral lithotripsy (TUL or URS), and percutaneous lithotripsy (PNL or PCNL). Also, for TUL, r-TUL (or r-URS) using a rigid pelvic ureteroscope (hereinafter, rigid endoscope) and f-TUL (or f-URS) using a flexible pelvic ureteroscope (hereinafter, flexible endoscope) There is. In TUL, it is possible to directly reach the stone in the ureter or renal pelvis and kidney through the urethra, urinary bladder, and ureter using a rigid or flexible endoscope, and the stone can be directly crushed and extracted. Therefore, compared with ESWL and PNL, there are advantages that damage to the ureter and kidneys can be suppressed and a high stone free rate can be realized. As a device used for TUL, there is known a device (basket forceps) that removes a calculus generated in a ureter or kidney or a plurality of calculus fragments generated after crushing a calculus by a laser while holding the wire with a wire. (See Patent Document 1).

Special table 2001-512355

  In quarrying with basket forceps, the grasping function of basket forceps and the size of the ureter lumen and ureter access sheath (guiding catheter) are limited. There is a limit to the number of stones and stone fragments that can be removed at one time in the extraction operation. Therefore, in order to remove the calculus, the basket forceps need to be inserted and removed many times between the outside of the body and the place where the calculus is present. Thereby, a big burden with respect to a user (operator) arises. In addition, the operation time is increased because the operation of inserting and removing the basket forceps many times increases the risk of developing postoperative urinary tract infections and the load on the ureter due to ischemia, etc. In addition, there are various disadvantages to patients such as the inability to remove stones and stone fragments within the time limit of surgery set to suppress postoperative infections and an increased risk of recurrence.

  Moreover, the end surface of a calculus and a calculus fragment will be exposed from the clearance gap between the metal wires which comprise a basket forceps by grasping a some calculus. Therefore, if you try to remove multiple calculi and calculus fragments to the outside of the body at once, the inner wall of the kidney and ureter may be damaged, or the distal end face of the ureter access sheath and the calculus and calculus The exposed part of the crushed piece may fit and not be pulled out of the body.

The wire 11 is configured as a linear member that can be pushed into the gap between the plurality of calculi K accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a by the operation of the operation member 14C. The wires 11 are introduced into the gaps between the calculi K and firmly hold the calculi K together. For example, the wire 11 is a metal coil with a hydrophilic coat. The wire 11 may be a hydrocoil that is spirally wound while being swollen. The wire 11 is not limited to a metal, and may be composed of, for example, a thread formed by bundling fibers.

  The cylinder 12 collects the calculus K. The cylinder 12 includes a housing part 12a, an opening part 12b, and an introduction part 12c. The accommodating part 12a accommodates the calculus K. The accommodating part 12a is formed in a cylindrical shape, is provided with an opening part 12b at one end, and is closed at the base end side corresponding to the other end. The accommodating part 12a is shape | molded, for example from the material provided with flexibility, and can deform | transform according to the shape of the ureter 230 etc. FIG. The accommodating part 12a is shape | molded from a transparent material in visible region, and the accommodation condition of the calculus K can be visually observed from the outside. The opening 12b communicates with the housing 12a and opens. The calculus K is accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a through the opening 12b. The introduction part 12c is formed of a through hole through which the wire 11 can be introduced into the accommodation part 12a. The introduction part 12c communicates the lumen 13a of the introduction pipe 13 and the accommodating part 12a. The introduction part 12c opens to the inner peripheral surface of the accommodation part 12a. For example, the tube 12 may include an X-ray contrast agent, and image the contrast agent from outside under X-ray fluoroscopy so that the position in the living body can be confirmed.

  The introduction tube 13 introduces the wire 11 that is unloaded from the hand operation unit 14 and loaded into the storage unit 12a. The introduction tube 13 is formed in an elongated cylindrical shape, and a lumen 13a is formed through which the wire 11 can be introduced into the accommodating portion 12a via the introduction portion 12c. One end of the introduction tube 13 is joined to the cylinder 12, and the other end corresponding to the proximal end side is detachably connected to the hand operation unit 14. The introduction tube 13 is formed from a flexible material and can be deformed according to the shape of the ureter 230 and the movement of the flexible mirror 100.

  The hand operation unit 14 is used by a user (operator) to perform an operation for introducing the wire 11 into the housing 12a of the tube 12 or adjusting the position of the tube 12 introduced into the ureter 230. It is. The hand operation unit 14 includes a holding member 14A, a winding member 14B, an operation member 14C, and a gripping member 14D. The holding member 14 </ b> A corresponds to the main body of the hand operation unit 14. The holding member 14 </ b> A is formed in a cylindrical shape, and is detachably connected to the proximal end side of the introduction pipe 13 by fitting or press-fitting. A holding member 14D is connected below the holding member 14A. The holding member 14A accommodates the winding member 14B. The winding member 14B is formed in a cylindrical shape and winds the wire 11.

  The operation member 14C is for operating the introduction of the wire 11 into the accommodating portion 12a. The operation member 14C is formed of a handle, for example, and is connected to the winding member 14B. The operation member 14C may be configured to be connected to both sides of the winding member 14B so that the user (operator) can operate with either the right hand or the left hand. As shown in FIG. 1B, when the user (operator) rotates the operation member 14 </ b> C, the winding member 14 </ b> B is driven and rotated, and the wire 11 is introduced into the accommodating portion 12 a of the cylinder 12. Further, when the user (operator) rotates the operation member 14C in the direction opposite to that when the wire 11 is introduced into the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12, the wire 11 introduced into the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12 is introduced. It is drawn into the introduction tube 13 and the hand operation part 14 through the part 12c. The grasping member 14D is grasped by the user (operator). The gripping member 14D is connected below the holding member 14A.

  The usage method of the calculus removal apparatus 10 is demonstrated with reference to FIGS.

  FIG. 2 is a diagram schematically showing a state in which the calculus removing device 10 is mounted on the flexible mirror 100. FIG. 3 is a view schematically showing a state in which the flexible endoscope 100 equipped with the calculus removing device 10 is introduced into the ureter 230 of the patient 200. FIG. 4 is a diagram schematically illustrating a state in which the calculus K is collected in the cylinder 12 of the calculus removing device 10. FIG. 4A is a view showing the accommodating portion 12 a of the cylinder 12. FIG. 4B is a diagram illustrating a state in which a plurality of calculi K are accommodated in the accommodating portion 12 a of the cylinder 12. FIG. 4C is a diagram showing a state in which a plurality of calculi K are entangled and held by the wire 11 introduced into the accommodating portion 12a.

  A cystoscope generally used in the urinary system is used for the patient 200 shown in FIG. 3, and a guide wire widely known in the medical field is passed through the urethra 210 and the bladder 220 to the ureter 230 or the renal pelvis and kidney cup 240. Introduce. Next, a rigid endoscope is inserted, and the inner wall of the ureter 230 and the calculus K in the ureter 230 are observed. At this time, the calculus K may be removed by using basket forceps together with the rigid endoscope. In addition, using a rigid endoscope together with a crushing device such as a holmium / yag laser, the relatively large and difficult-to-remove calculus K can be crushed to a relatively small size, or the resulting calculus fragments can be crushed using basket forceps. And may be removed. Thereafter, the rigid endoscope is removed from the living body.

  Next, the ureteral access sheath is introduced into the ureter 230 or the renal pelvis and kidney cup 240 via the urethra 210 and the bladder 220 via the guide wire.

  The flexible endoscope 100 is inserted through the ureteral access sheath, and the calculus K is observed. At this time, the guide wire may be removed. When the calculus K has a relatively large size that is difficult to pass through the ureteral access sheath, the calculus K is crushed and made relatively small by using a crushing device such as a holmium yag laser together with the flexible mirror 100.

  Next, the calculus removing device 10 and the flexible mirror 100 are assembled. Specifically, as shown in FIG. 2, from the state where the introduction tube 13 and the hand operation unit 14 of the calculus removing device 10 are separated, the introduction tube 13 is inserted into the working channel 101 of the flexible endoscope 100 from the distal end side of the flexible endoscope 100. After introduction, the proximal end side of the introduction tube 13 is taken out from the port 102, and the proximal end side of the introduction tube 13 is fitted and attached to the hand operating portion 14.

  Next, as shown in FIG. 3, the flexible endoscope 100 equipped with the calculus removing device 10 is made to reach, for example, a site where the calculus K is present in the ureter 230 through the urethra 210 and the bladder 220 of the patient 200. Then, the calculus K is collected in the cylinder 12 using the calculus removing device 10. Specifically, the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12 shown in FIG. 4A is pressed against the calculus K in the ureter 230 shown in FIG. 3 from the hand operating portion 14 side. In order to efficiently store the calculus K in the storage portion 12a, the storage portion 12a may be pushed and pulled a plurality of times from the hand operating portion 14 side. As shown in FIG. 4B, the calculus K is accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a through the opening 12b of the cylinder 12. Here, as shown in FIG. 4C, the wire 11 is introduced into the accommodating portion 12 a of the cylinder 12, and the plurality of calculi K are entangled and held by the wire 11. The wires 11 are introduced into the gaps between the calculi K and firmly hold the calculi K together.

  Next, the calculus removing device 10 that collects the calculus K in the cylinder 12 is transported outside the body. The wire 11 introduced into the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12 outside the body is drawn into the introduction tube 13 and the hand operation portion 14 through the introduction portion 12c. Here, an air gap is generated again between the calculus K, and the calculus K is easily removed from the accommodating portion 12a.

  And again, after making the calculus removal apparatus 10 reach | attain the site | part in which the calculus K exists, taking in the calculus K to the accommodating part 12a and removal outside a body are repeated. In addition, as a location which removes the calculus K from the accommodating part 12a, you may be in a urinary bladder. Further, for the purpose of changing the position of the calculus K (repositioning), the calculus K may be taken into the accommodating portion 12a by one kidney cup in the renal pelvis and then released in another kidney cup.

  The calculus removing device 10 may be used together with a rigid endoscope. That is, it may be used in place of the basket forceps in observation with a rigid mirror, crushed stone, and quarrying operation that are performed prior to the quarrying operation with the flexible mirror 100.

  Next, a guide wire is introduced into the ureter 230 or renal pelvis cup 240 through the urethra 210 and bladder 220. Furthermore, after placing the ureteral stent for indwelling the upper ureter over the guide wire, the guide wire is removed. The ureteral stent corresponds to a temporary postoperative ureteral obstruction or the like. The ureteral stent is removed after a predetermined number of days.

  The procedure described with reference to FIGS. 2 to 4 is mainly as follows. This is a method for introducing a calculus K into a living body of a patient 200 and collecting the calculus K outside the body, and preparing a calculus removing device 10 that holds the calculus K accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12 by a wire 11, and is rigid. A method in which a calculus removing device 10 attached to a mirror or a flexible mirror 100 is introduced into a living body, and the calculus K accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a through the opening 12b of the cylinder 12 is held by the wire 11 and removed from the body.

  As described above, according to the calculus removing device 10 according to the first embodiment, since the calculus K accommodated in the accommodating portion 12a of the cylinder 12 can be held by the wire 11, the calculus K is reliably held in the accommodating portion 12a. Can be removed outside the body.

  In addition to this, the calculus removing device 10 can accommodate a plurality of calculi K in the accommodating portion 12a at a time, so that the calculus K removal efficiency can be greatly improved. That is, by using the calculus removing device 10, the time required for removing the plurality of calculi K can be greatly shortened, or more calculi K can be removed within a certain period of time. In TUL, even if the upper limit of the operation time is prescribed for the prevention of the onset of postoperative urinary tract infections, etc., by using the stone removal device 10, more stones K can be removed from the body. Therefore, the stone free rate can be improved.

  In addition to this, the calculus removing device 10 can accommodate a plurality of calculi K having different sizes in the accommodating portion 12a, so that it is possible to remove relatively small calculus K to large calculus K at a time. Become.

  In addition, since the calculus removing device 10 can accommodate the calculus K in the accommodating portion 12a, the calculus K to be removed from the ureter 230 or the like is in contact with the inner wall of the ureter 230 or the bladder 220 to cause laceration.
